It was, as a long-dead English dude once proclaimed, the Best of Times and the Worst of Times. In the credit column: N.C.I.P. celebrated its 100th episode last Saturday evening. To commemorate this august moment, Reeshard & Lee-Roy cherry-picked four sets of favorite tunes from the preceding 99 shows. Also, Uncle Morty rose to the spirit of the occasion by turning up with a canister of something called Groovy Love Bush, about which there is little to say beyond acknowledging that, yes, it does exist. And it works. On the downside, the city’s building inspector revisited the Purple Bat Lounge and discovered much of an objectionable nature, architecturally speaking. (He also discovered one of Morty’s ex-competitors in the basement, which did nothing to lighten his mood.) Our hosts — and we’re sure you at home feel much as we do — hope this storm blows over presently. No Condition Is Permanent will be on hiatus for the balance of August, while the management sorts it all out. The show will return at Summer’s end with still more cultural scheiße! Until then, you can dig our 100th show by clicking below, and investigate our archived episodes by scrolling down this page. See you in September!

We’d love to have you believe that the very air itself was electrified hereabouts, so palpable the excitement leading up to the forthcoming 100th broadcast of No Condition Is Permanent. Truth be told, however, a glance about the Purple Bat Lounge this past Saturday evening revealed little beyond the usual no-good-niks up to their usual scams and vices. Speaking of the latter, Uncle Morty pulled his dreary former ice cream truck up to the curb and bestowed upon co-host Lee-Roy something called Conspiracy Kush. (Hint: The canister’s label bore an image of director Oliver Stone.) So, as Reeshard played lots of terrific music, everyone’s favorite pit bull cowered beneath the bar, wary of black helicopters and the like. None of which actually materialized, though the city’s building inspector paid a surprise visit…but enough of the spoilers. Check out the whole shootin’ match yourself, simply by clicking immediately below. Tune in anyways…

They say the dog days of summer are bad for business, especially for radio and dive bars. Were you to visit the Purple Bat Lounge last Saturday evening, however, you might question this assumption. Sure, the characters that hang out there don’t appear to be weighted down with options as to how they might otherwise spend their time. And, once a certain…erm, mindset has been achieved, temperature may not be so much a consideration as all that. But a good time is nothing to be taken for granted, whatever the weather, and something resembling said time was happening in a big way during the four sets of music selected by Reeshard and Lee-Roy. The latter, it should be noted, nearly had his pork rind supply cut off — again — after an ill-considered encounter with LaWanda the bartender. We won’t go into that, especially as you can check it all out for yourself, simply by clicking immediately below. Tune in anyways…

Every episode of No Condition Is Permanent is about music, despite whatever else might occur during those two hours it occupies each Saturday evening. And yet so little is ever said about the show’s core programming. Let’s take a moment to redress this oversight, shall we? Overall, this past Saturday’s four sets of music cruised well in excess of the posted limit, as they ought to do. The first set kicked off with an Arabic revision of a Barry White chestnut, and went from there to uptown New York boogaloo, extra-trashy surf instrumentals, West African funk, eccentric reggae, mod dance floor ravers from the U.K. and an all-girl Michigan garage band. The following three sets were cut from the same cloth, all of these providing an appropriate soundtrack for bad behavior. The crowd at the Purple Bat Lounge were into it. Distracted by these tough, cool sounds, few if any noticed that co-host Lee-Roy was absent from the bar when a neighboring house caught fire…but that’s another story. It’s really all about the music, which you’ll  understand once you click immediately below. Tune in anyways…

Link-Wray

pictured: Link Wray at work

Another Saturday evening at the Purple Bat Lounge, along that lonely stretch of Brush St. in downtown Detroit. When locals are asked about this particular thoroughfare, its name elicits but one associative word: “Hookers.”  It’s a street where the good of heart fear to tread, where the men are at best mercenary and the women are worse. Bad apples luxuriate in this climate, and as such it’s up to Reeshard and his canine co-host Lee-Roy to provide suitable divertissement for the picaresque bunch that frequents this part of town.  Which they did, in spades, serving up four sets of sounds which soothe the troubled minds of those individuals variously: Dodging their parole officers; trying to find small denomination bills in time for Uncle Morty’s weekly visit; or simply figuring out whether they should take the bus or catch a plane en route to the rest room. Life can be confusing, at times seeming like an exercise in pointlessness. Which is where we come in, providing the perfect soundtrack for the latter. You own trudge through the wilderness will sound that much better, once you’ve clicked on the link below. Tune in anyways…

Françoise Hardy in repose

You can labor shoulder to shoulder with someone for days, weeks and years on end, share life’s joys and travails, get into and out of all manner of scrapes (these latter usually initiated by said comrade) and, ultimately, feel that a true rapport has been earned, that you really know who someone is. All of the aforesaid was handily disproved last Saturday night when, in the course of selecting four sets of deeply enjoyable music, co-host Lee-Roy stood revealed as…a Trekkie, of all things. Of course, there was a catalyst prying that closet door open delivered mid-program by Uncle Morty, specifically a small canister marked Uhuru (featuring the likeness of Nicelle Nichols on its label). Some unusual Blaxploitation fare screened at The Madison and, looking for UFO’s, co-host Lee-Roy ultimately found his way to the roof of the Purple Bat Lounge, there to encounter wisdom in the person of an old adversary. More could be told, but better you should hear it for yourself, simply by clicking immediately below. Tune in anyways…

Not a lot to say about last Saturday night’s revels at The Purple Bat Lounge, beyond noting the usual four sets of terrific music, the best exotic party mix since Screaming Yellow Zonkers.  The decrepit ice cream truck parked out front was the source of a small canister marked ‘Black Mamba.’ That said canister bore the likeness of André Williams (a patron saint of N.C.I.P) shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone familiar with our scene. But co-host Lee-Roy creeped out by a scary double  feature at The Madison? That’s surprising. We could tell you more, but the pleasure’s in the listening, something you can do easily enough simply by clicking below. Tune in anyways…

If you’re anything like us, by this point in time you’re probably aggravated anytime the Japanese film Rashomon is referenced when two or more people’s accounts of the same event differ significantly. Well, that’s how it was this past Saturday evening at The Purple Bat Lounge. For Lee-Roy, a great time: He learned that The Madison was showing two Pam Grier films. Coincidentally, Uncle Morty arrived with a canister of Black Domina!, the strain named for the aforementioned actress. Sure, there was a minor misunderstanding with LaWanda, the bartender (and part-time dominatrix) involving Lee-Roy mistaking a vibrator for a chew toy, but that was easily resolved by a heroic move on the pit bull’s part. As for his co-host Reeshard: Well, a lot of terrific music played, and no one was shot. (At this point in his life, Reeshard cherishes the simple pleasures.) There’s really a lot more to the story, which you may now discover simply by clicking below. Tune in anyways…

Were you to drop by the Purple Bat Lounge on a given Saturday evening, you’d stand a good chance of hearing at least a few of these characters, all of them favorites of ours. Co-host Lee-Roy thought this was a good idea, to let people know what they were getting into. As usual, I indulged him. Will probably live to regret that…
